Vermont State Police investigators are planning to release more details about the fatal shooting of a bank robbery suspect who was surrounded by police on the athletic fields at the Montpelier High School.

You can see the officers involved in the photo gallery to the right.

In 2014, police said he broke in and stole cash from Positive Pie in Montpelier.

"We are treating this as an officer-involved shooting", said Vermont State Police Col. Matthew Birmingham.

Police say Griffin's autopsy results are still pending.

Supporters say IN is the only state that regulates the temperature at which beer is sold and IN needs to get with the times. They also said they would pay an additional fee for the right to sell cold beer, which could be used to aid liquor stores.

The Vermont State Police say Sergeants Cory Lozier, Lyle Decker, Eugene Duplissis, Charles Winn, David White, Troopers Christopher Brown, Brandon Degre, Isaac Merriam, and Montpelier Police Department Corporal Michael B. Philbrick all discharged their firearms during the shooting.

The suspect, 32-year-old Nathan Giffin, was shot and killed by police not long after he left the credit union.

"Yesterday was scary and stressful", Montpelier School Superintendent Brian Ricca said Wednesday.

In video of the incident taken by a local television station Giffin can be seen holding what appears to be a handgun.

Authorities said Giffin's criminal history dated to 2002.
